Winter Town Hall Meetings
Arrupe College faculty and staff hosted two Winter Town Hall Meetings on January 20th for the morning and afternoon cohorts of students in order to celebrate students that had earned honors in the first semester and provide updates on upcoming college panels and visits, employment and career planning resources and student retreats.
Dean and executive director, Steve Katsouros, S.J., presented fifty-five students with Dean’s List awards. A student must earn a GPA of 3.5 or above for the semester in order to be placed on the Dean’s List. Associate dean of academics, Dr. Jennifer Boyle, remarked, “I am so enthused and energized by our students’ performance this semester. I am also inspired by their dreams and their determination to achieve them. It is an honor to walk with them.”
Career coordinator, Ms. Farrah Ellison-Moore, explained the new, four-year career planning process, which includes an individual meeting with each student. Ms. Julie Garcia, director of college placement, congratulated sophomores on their acceptances to several colleges and universities, including Loyola University Chicago, Dominican University and the University of St. Francis. Ms. Garcia also reminded students that Arrupe would be hosting another college panel on Thursday, February 23rd, with representatives from University of Wisconsin - Madison, Marquette University and DePaul University.
